An emerging commercial fishery license and an experimental fishery permit are required to participate in this fishery.

(2) The department will issue five Quilcene Bay salmon beach seine experimental fishery permits (Quilcene permits).

(3) The following is the selection process the department will use to offer a Quilcene permit.

(a) Persons who held a Quilcene Bay salmon beach seine experimental fishery permit in ((1996)) 1997 will be eligible for a permit in ((1997)) 1998.

(b) The department established a pool of applicants by drawing on September 9, 1996. The pool established by this drawing will be maintained to replace any permit(s) which may be voided.

(4) Permit holders are required to participate in the Quilcene Bay salmon beach seine experimental fishery.

(a) For purposes of this section, "participation" means the holder of the Quilcene permit being aboard the designated vessel in the open fishery area four days each week during the open fishing period, except that during the Fraser sockeye and pink salmon species season in Areas 7 and 7A "participation" means the holder of the Quilcene permit being aboard the designated vessel in the open fishery area two days each week during the open fishing period.

(b) If the Quilcene permit holder fails to participate, the Quilcene permit issued to that fisher will be void and a new Quilcene permit will be ((reissued)) issued through a random drawing from the applicant pool established in 1996.

(c) The department may require proof of participation by registering with state, federal or tribal officials each day the Quilcene permit holder participates.

(d) Persons who participate, but violate conditions of a Quilcene permit, will have the permit voided and a new Quilcene permit will be reissued through a random drawing from the pool of the voided permit holder. Chum salmon may not be retained by a Quilcene permit holder. Chum salmon must be released alive, or, at the direction of federal or state officials, submitted for broodstock purposes.

(5) Any person who fails to purchase the license, fails to participate, or violates the conditions of a Quilcene permit will have his or her name permanently withdrawn from the pools.

(6) It is unlawful to take salmon with beach seine gear that does not meet the requirements of this subsection.
